I have been researching this raw lifestyle for over a year and for the last few months i've really gotten into it! Exspecially the 80 10 10 diet.
I have been having a hard time going completely raw, but i think I'm on a good path.
I don't know anyone in my circle of friends or acquaintances who has even heard about this lifestyle, so i don't really have any kind of support system back home.
So hopefully i'll find some support, help, and best of all friends from here :)
Thats all i think!
I'm also on my way towards 100% raw. Although transitioning isn't recommended, it was VERY difficult for me to eat much fruit initially. For the first week it was a challenge to get down a 5 banana smoothie without gagging, plus buying rice in bulk can be so much more affordable than organic produce! Luckily, whatever aversion I had to the large amounts of fruit sugar disappeared quickly and I've worked my way up to 9 bananas at a time. :)
I'm done with the grains now and don't plan on buying anything else that requires cooking. I'm making this Sunday my official start date of 100% (still have some potatoes to finish up).
Anyway, welcome and I'm happy to give friendship and support while I too embrace the LFRV lifestyle.
Thanks so much! yeah maybe we can help each other :D
i have had a hard time too with the bananas. I've been making a lot of smoothies though and filling them up with bananas and strawberries yumm!
Welcome :) you're in the right place
Welcome! I learned so much from this community after only some days after registering. I decided to go 100% 811 because I'm a sort of person that has an "all or none" sort of mentality for things that are important to me. ;)
There are great people here who can help and I hope you find just as much peace and happiness here as I hae found, Cerie. :)
Aw, thank you. I'm looking forward to connect with everyone :)
Welcome You wont regret joining this site. Good luck on your travel :D
and welcome to the exclusive club, muahahaha!
My pro tip to you is make sure the fruit is ripe, ripe fruit is a huuuuge difference, something I didn't realize at first.
Yeah, i've been having difficulties already with this. I've bought mangos several times and they always tend to go bad or not ripe enough :/
but thanks for the tip! :)
